It seems like every bar, restaurant, and corner store offers a happy hour. But few realize that overcooked hot wings and watered-down drinks do not a happy hour make. As a matter of fact, just thinking about that crap makes us kinda sad. But one of our favorite downtown restaurants, Soya y Pomodoro, is enticing us with a new happy hour, and this one actually paints a smile on our faces.
Its called Beat Traffic, a name that commands us to eschew rush hour in the car for rush hour at the bar, so we can bob our heads to live music on a barstool instead of rocking to canned banter in the drivers seat. Every Friday from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., imported beers are two for five dollars, and glasses of wine are two for seven. Plus the tapas menu says nothing about baskets of Costco hot wings. Now were happy.
